WordPress Website Management and Maintenance Services for Solo Professionals and Small Businesses
Keep your website running in good health with Webmaster Services, including:
- Website content updates.
- Weekly management of WordPress core software and plugin updates.
- Offsite website backups.
- Security monitoring.
- Technical support, troubleshooting and consulting.
Focus on growing your business while I take care of your website.
While you can learn to maintain your website yourself, it’s going to take time, continual education as technology changes, and lots of patience when something breaks. If that doesn’t sound like fun to you, then turn those site maintenance tasks over to me!
“Thank you for supporting my business for all of these years. I truly appreciate your continued attention to detail on my website. It frees me up to do the things I’m much better at. My business wouldn’t run as well as it does without your help.”
Website Content Updates
Fresh content keeps your website “alive.” If you don’t have the time or desire to make changes to your site’s content or publish new blog posts yourself, then send me the new content and I’ll make the changes for you.
My turn-around time for content updates is one to three business days, depending on my availability and the amount of updates requested. If I anticipate that I cannot get your update finished within three days, I will let you know when I receive your request.
If you have an update that must be finished by a certain date, please plan ahead and let me know in advance so I can do my best to meet your deadline!
There are no monthly maintenance contracts or minimum fees. I work only as needed. My time is logged in 15-minute increments. At the end of a month during which I have performed tasks for you, I total up the time worked and send out an invoice for charges based on my $50.00 per hour rate. Payment is due within 10 days upon receipt of invoice.
10% Prepayment Credit
Enjoy the convenience of making one payment that covers several months of updates rather than making small monthly payments while saving a little money, too! Make a payment of $100.00 or more toward future work and an extra credit in the amount of 10% of your prepayment amount will be applied to your account.
WordPress Plugin, Theme and Software Updates
Keep your website functioning smoothly with timely software updates and security software monitoring.
WordPress is content management software that is installed on your web server. Like all software, WordPress is vulnerable to attack. Technology is constantly changing. Plugin updates, theme updates, bug fixes, security patches, and core WordPress software upgrades are released continually, often several times a month.
If you don’t want to keep up with the technology and methods for backing up your website and updating your WordPress software safely, I offer the following software maintenance services:
- Timely, offsite website backups.
- Research update and changelog notes before installing updates to look for possible conflicts or changes that could break something on your website. If there is a potential problem, I will wait to install an update until the software developers have resolved the issue.
- Install plugin updates.
- Install theme updates.
- Install core WordPress software upgrades.
- Set up a security firewall and malware scanning plugin.
- Monitor website health.
Software update plans start at $25.00 per month. I perform weekly software checks because updates often include bug fixes and security patches. There is no contract, so you can cancel software maintenance services at any time and do the updates yourself.
Note: Occasionally a WordPress core or plugin update breaks a function on a website because technologies and programming code are constantly changing. These software conflicts may require changes to settings or code in your website that will take additional time and incur an additional cost not covered by the set monthly software updates fee. For these fixes, I log time in 15-minute increments and bill you for the total time to resolve issues at my $50.00 per hour rate.
